Kevin Atlas (Laue) is an internationally-renowned motivational speaker who has shared his incredible
life story of facing challenges and turning them into triumphs with audiences across six continents is coming to Rye High School. Due to
complications at birth, Atlas was born with a left arm that ended just below the elbow. As a young child, Kevin
struggled in school and with self- confidence, until a middle school coach showed that he believed in him. From
that moment on, Kevin dedicated himself to school, and basketball, and eventually became the first- ever
player with one hand to earn a Division I basketball scholarship. Kevin’s story is so powerful that is was
chronicled in an Oscar- qualifying documentary titled, “Long Shot.”
